Osteopathic Workshops

Osteopathic Principles & Practice Introductory Workshop (On-demand)

Osteopathic Principles & Practice (OPP) workshops are interactive, hands-on educational activities that incorporate kinesthetic learning, lecture, and small group work at OMT tables. Participants experience an enriched learning environment focused on OPP modalities: soft tissue; myofascial release; lymphatics; counterstrain; muscle energy; high velocity, low amplitude. The workshops are designed to foster osteopathic-focused learning environments in residency training programs. They are aimed at osteopathic preceptors to develop and improve knowledge in OPP and improve competencies as osteopathic preceptors. CME may be available.
